The Activators CD Giveaway (2 Winners) - (CLOSED)

This was taken directly from The Activators Press Release!

Childhood obesity has risen to epidemic levels in the U.S. There is one segment of the children’s population where obesity is successfully addressed head-on each and every day – the more than one million kids who have made MY GYM Children’s Fitness Center kids a regular destination.

To bring the MY GYM message of fitness and fun to children beyond their multi award-winning locations, MY GYM Children’s Fitness Center has launched The Activators, a stand-alone entertainment brand comprised of four talented My Gym teachers who sing and dance to original music, while engage in comedy – and exercise – routines designed to get kids activated with the message that fitness is fun.

The Activators will inspire kids and their parents to exercise their bodies and minds,” said Matt Hendison, Chief Marketing & Entertainment Officer for My Gym Children’s Fitness Center. “With both childhood obesity and media consumption among children on the rise, The Activators fill an unmet need for interactive, educational children’s entertainment. It is a groundbreaking concept that will allow us to spread the message of physical fitness beyond our bricks-and-mortar locations and positively impact children on a much higher level.”

"As my children became captivated by TV, computers, mobile devices, and video games, I initially grew concerned, then I got inspired," added Lichtenstein. "Since the media that keep children sedentary could also steer them towards physical activity, I decided to create a show that could exist on every available platform and transform children from passive viewers to physically active participants. I can't think of a better partner to help bring The Activators to life than My Gym."

The Activators was established in 1983. It is the #1-ranking fitness center destination for children with 200 locations worldwide, including international locations in Hong Kong, France and Ireland. Activators has combined innovative, early physical education classes with state-of-the-art facilities to empower children - ages 6 weeks to 13 years - by helping them acquire the skills, confidence and positive self-image needed to become healthy young adults. Children gain strength, balance, coordination, fine and gross motor proficiency, agility, flexibility, and social skills. Mymo’s Adventures earned the 2006 iParenting Award for Outstanding Children’s DVD.
As parents we know how important physical activity is for our children. We now live in a world of video games and computers. More children are spending all their time doing these activities instead of practicing good health. This has caused many health issues with our children today. The Activators offers a fun way for kids to become more active.

The Activators website is even fun and very encouraging for children. It offers downloadable fitness-themed coloring pages, activity pages, and paper crafts. In addition, the website’s “Be An Activator!” section will allow parents to download an Activator pledge and membership card for their children and receive discounts on Activators merchandise. Plus the website itself is fun to play and navigate through. What a way to make physical activity fun. This will really encourage kids to participate.

As a mom I completely support the idea behind The Activators. This is an awesome website filled with fun! I highly recommend it. Find out more about The Activators and The Activator website here.

  5. I also encourage exercise by being outside as much as we can. When the weather does keep us inside, we play games that involve getting up and moving around.
